Abstract Industrial acids delivered to a factory in railway tank cars are safely distributed around the factory by means of truck-drawn tank wagons (2m3 capacity) and smaller wheeled tanks (0.5m3). The acids are transferred by siphoning. Transfers are carried out by specially trained teams under the supervision of a factory official. The drivers who transport the containers must likewise undergo special instruction and be certified for competence in the handling of dangerous substances. The supply department of the factory includes an emergency squad which is trained and equipped to neutralise and clean up spills.
